Tottenham made a stunning statement on Monday by shattering their transfer record for Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, while also securing the services of Jack Clarke from Leeds United (BBC).
One other midfielder who is said to be a prime target for the club this summer is Real Betis midfielder Giovani Lo Celso.
It has been suggested that the Argentina intentional is Mauricio Pochettino’s preferred choice to replace Christian Eriksen, should he jump ship and join Real Madrid.
Yesterday, Sky Sports News suggested that Tottenham and Betis had put their talks on hold after failing to agree on a valuation for the 23-year-old.
Seville-based news outlet Estadio Deportivo, who are normally reliable when it comes to news regarding Betis, have suggested that a deal to bring Lo Celso to Tottenham is 80% done.
The report goes on to reveal that the Betis President and the CEO have had multiple meetings with the Tottenham hierarchy, the latest of which took place a few days ago.
It is also claimed that the deal should progress quicker now that Lo Celso is done with his Copa America commitments with Argentina.

This would be great news if true as Lo Celso is an extremely talented player and will bring a lot to the Spurs team. However, if the Lilywhites are attempting to land the Argentine, then that suggests that Eriksen’s days in North London are numbered.
